Mob City premiered on TNT Wednesday night. Something of an experiment for the procedural-driven network, the period piece did not prove to be much of a game changer with an average 2.3 million viewers off the bat.
There’s little to compare to Mob City. While this opening is far south of summer flagship fare Rizzoli & Isles and Falling Skies, its December launch and “event” billing are outliers for the Turner network. In the network’s targeted adults 25-54 bracket, Mob City raked in 875,000 viewers.
Like all networks, TNT is earning more and more growth once DVR returns are tallied. Still, Monday’s episode of Major Crimes averaged 4.2 million viewers in the second outing of its midseason run.
Mob City hails from Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead) and is a 1940s Los Angeles set drama about the rampant corruption of the time. Its a precursor to several other high-profile series orders — executive producers Howard Gordon (Homeland), Michael Bay (Black Sails) and Steven Bochco (NYPD Blue) all have projects at the network — that will debut later in 2014.
Doubling up for all six episodes of its order, Mob City airs its next two installments on Dec. 11 and 18.
